The Good Samaritan got the victim to an inn –
they didn't do much more.

Imagine you're pregnant and see this sign on someone's door in the dorm. Or on the highway. Then at the mall. Then at a supermarket. At some point you'll probably take down the number or even talk to someone who displays it.

If you care about pregnant women and the unborn, that becomes a HUGE opportunity to be her bridge to the network of people who are eager to help her do the natural, healthy, beautiful, and rewarding thing.

No longer will those who promote unnecessary choices be able to claim that we don't care about women.


The many reasons women resort to abortion boil down to a seeming conflict between two choices: an intelligent more secure life vs. going through an imprudent and disadvantageous pregnancy that puts their life off-track. The government has rashly championed the point of view that this conflict is unavoidable and that a choice MUST be made, leaving women vulnerable to desperate, unhealthy, regretful, and potentially traumatizing actions.

It's not unhealthy because one side declares it to be. At Candle in the Window, we are simply listening to the thousands of women who are finally coming out of their shells of remorse and telling the sad tales of how devastating abortion has been in their lives. It was no favor to them!

Today we are in a period of history with the greatest volunteerism on behalf of women ever seen. Today there are more resources available to pregnant women than ever before. In every community there are families that become part of their lives and today are seeing nearly-aborted kids graduate from high school and college that were almost never given a chance.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO BE A BRIDGE
Now that so many resources exist, it's up to ordinary people in society to be informed and to link pregnant women to them. We're not asking you to offer them housing or other resources yourself, although you might be moved to do so. We're happy to follow the example of the Good Samaritan, who took the trouble to get the wounded person to an inn. They didn’t do much more.

SHE'S LOOKING FOR A SIGN.

A desperate pregnant woman wants to do the right thing. She is considering all sorts of possibilities, and looking for signs that point her in the right direction.

To help her find her way, we've created a sign for people of good will to hang in their cars and homes, that identify them as people eager to help. During slavery times, people like you put a candle in your window at night to tell escapees that you would help them. We're not even asking you to be THAT committed, but to at least offer phone numbers and websites where the young woman can find long-term help.

BENEFITS OF POSTING THE SIGN
If you post the sign, you will be telling pregnant women that you care and might have help to offer. They will realize that they do not have to face this difficult time ALONE. If they are in a crisis we will be able to solve their crisis without harming their pregnancy.

No longer will politicians and journalists be able to assert that we "only care about the baby and not about the woman”. We care about BOTH and we need to make that better known.

Please help us convince the world:
• That abortion (and any absolute power over a life) leads to genuine harm for victim and dominator alike;
• That help is available;
• That pitting a mother's life against her child's life is completely unnecessary;
• That a woman's life is never the same after an abortion–it can affect all her relationships since that “lens” will always be there;
• That adoption is not the “mean” option, but a joyous and wonderful solution for many, leaving the birthmother dignified and heroic in her sacrifice;
• That post-abortive healing is possible and begins with mourning what one has done and recognizing the shared responsibility of non-distressed people who should have known better;
• That you do, in fact, CARE.
